CRC Library

The header crc.hpp provides two implementations of CRC (cyclic redundancy code) computation objects and two implementations of CRC computation functions. The implementations are template-based.

The first object implementation is for theoretical use. It can process single bits, but is considered slow for practical use. The second object implementation is byte-oriented and uses look-up tables for fast operation. The optimized implementation should be suitable for general use. The first function implementation uses the optimized object. The second function implementation allows the use of a CRC that directly follows its data.
